Sometimes the ‘days of our lives like sand through an hourglass’ line seems all too realistic in the family law sphere. At times, disgruntled lovers seek to hurt each other. At other times, one parent takes steps to ensure the other cannot see their children. There have been occasions when parents didn’t know their children had moved overseas with the other parent. There are even circumstances where one party finds out the matrimonial home is about to be sold when they have had no input into the sale. On each of these occasions, depending upon the circumstances, an injunction stopping a party from doing something may be sought from the Court. In simple terms an injunction serves as notice from the Court that a party is not to do a certain act or thing.

This prolongs matters and often makes it more emotionally taxing for everyone involved.
